Active RetireesTM | 43 George Kimpton's Q&A Q: While working with a Word document I seem to have accidentally changed the Normal Template. Every time I open a new document it comes up with two columns and no matter what I do I can’t seem to get the old and original template back. Help! Templates are stored in the ‘C:\ Documents and Settings’ folder so go to ‘My Computer’ in the Start Menu then double click on the ‘C drive’ icon. When this opens, double click ‘User Name’ then ‘Application Data’ in the next window, followed by ‘Microsoft’ then ‘Templates’. Here you will see a file named ‘Normal.dot’. If you delete this file, restart your computer and then restart Word, Word will create a new Normal template based on the original settings. Alternatively, set up a new Normal template in Word (without any text) that reflects your needs before deleting the faulty template. To save the new template, select ‘Document Template’ in the ‘Save As Type’ box. Once you have deleted the faulty template, rename your new one ‘Normal. dot’ by right-clicking the existing filename, and selecting ‘rename’. Have a question? Send it to George Kimpton. E: firstname.lastname@example.org map and drag it around. Click the box in the top right-hand corner which says ‘Map’ or ‘Satellite’ to view the different versions of the map. How to get directions On the left-hand side directly below the Google Maps logo you will find a button labelled ‘Get Directions’. Click on this tab and under ‘A’ and ‘B’, enter the location you wish to travel to and from, then click ‘Get Directions’. In Australia you can choose between travelling by car and on foot by clicking the picture of the car or of the person. If you happen to be travelling through Europe or America, you can also choose to travel by public transport or bicycle. Google Maps will occasionally give you some unusual results if you ask for directions between two countries. Try looking up the walking directions between Japan and China. •• Listen up!

W: www.seniorsradio247.com Street view Once you have the hang of Google Maps you might want to try Street View. Street View allows you to see an address as it looks from street level. To access Street View you need to search for a specific street address. An animated orange person will then appear above the zoom ruler; clicking on it will take you to street view. You can also have a look around at the streetscape by clicking and dragging the photo that appears. Multiple destinations Not every trip you take will go from A to B. When you are getting directions from Google Maps it is possible to include more than one destination. Once you have typed in your start point and one destination, you can click the ‘Add Destination’ button, found directly below the destination text box. You can add destinations and you can rearrange the order they’re in. Just click on the letter beside a destination and drag it up or down in the list. Google Maps will update the directions, distance and travel time to take into account the changes. QTop left Google's street-view shows a driver's-eye view, although not in real-time.
